New Agreement Between GE Marine and Turkey 26 June, 2020

General Electric (GE) contract was signed for Fleet Replenishment Ship (Denizde İkmal Muharebe Destek Gemisi/ DiMDEG) Project, which emerged in accordance with the needs of the Turkish Navy.

Ge Marine, the company's naval arm, will procure two LM2500 gas turbines to DİMDEG, which will be built by Sefine Shipyard. “The LM2500 is GE’s most popular marine gas turbine and we are excited it was selected for the DIMDEG project,” said Kris Shepherd, Vice President, General Manager, GE Marine.

In 2018, a contract was signed between the Presidency of Defence Industries and Sefine Shipyard for the construction of the platform for use in administrative and logistics missions. The ship's war system components, which are scheduled to be commissioned in 2023, will be provided with a joint subsidiary of Aselsan and Havelsan.
